    START Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PwC.

    Interview Details

    The process was fairly simple. I attended the career conference at my school and talked with an associate. He referred me to the hiring manager and told me to email her. After talking with the hiring manager via email she set up a phone call between us discussing the Start Internship.

    Once I was done speaking to the recruiter over the phone, I was notified that I would have an on campus interview. This interview ended up being a phone interview instead. After the phone interview, on the same day I was notified I was selected for a firm visit with 3 interviews. The firm visit was fairly laid back and easy going. We started with a brief introduction to who PwC is and a lot of statistics about PwC (remember these!! easy talking points during the interview). After the introduction we were brought into our 3 different 30 min interviews. Most of the interviews just seemed to look for your personality and your relationship building skills.
